'Foxglove Spires', Central Tilba, NSW

On the New South Wales south coast is the enchanting Foxglove Spires Gardens at Tilba Tilba.
In 1984, Peter and Sue Southam purchased a 3.5 acre sheep paddock, which contained a 100 year old house and two massive Norfolk Island Pines.
With the addition of another 3 acres in 1999, these gardens are now a constant delight and open to the public all year round.

I'm sighing with delight after wandering through the meandering paths of these gorgeous gardens.
I just wish I could've been there with you in reality.
It all looks so lush, and tenderly cared for. The roses are blooming gloriously, and foxglove is always beautiful.
Thank you, dear Alice, for sharing this lovely place. It helps to warm the cockles on this chilly night :)

That was a wonderful series of pictures. I love the last flowers- they look just like the blooms on my Texas Sage bush- they must be related!
Thanks!
